Tatiana and Michael are a Star Wars loving couple who met through a mutual love of the franchise (in fact, it was their first conversation!). The couple met during the pandemic, and quarantine made sure they had PLENTY of time for communication and remote Star Wars marathons. Naturally, after their engagement in February of 2021, they knew they wanted to get married on Star Wars Day which is May 4th – May the 4th be with you!
The day ran smoothly thanks to McArthur Wedding and Events and photographer Lauren Pippin was on site at the couple’s venue, the Juniper Mountain House in Evergreen, CO to document the entire day! Let’s dive into this incredible wedding!
A Day to Remember
These wooden Save the Dates were perfect to set the mood for their Star Wars wedding in the woods!
Who needs a ring bearer when you can have a droid! This couple really thought everything out!
Sealed with a kiss… these two are married!
The Force Will Be With You. Always
Okay, these custom leather jackets are SO cool!! For any and all DIY-ers out there, here’s how you can custom-make your own wedding jackets!
Tatiana looks absolutely beautiful in her flowy tulle gown by Enzoani from Brides of Florida! And how chic do her ladies look in their off-the-shoulder bridesmaid dresses from David’s Bridal!
These men mean business!! Groom Michael proudly wears his Darth Vader helmet and looks snazzy in his suit from Men’s Warehouse while his groomsmen follow suit in stormtrooper helmets! How fun!!
Now THIS is one good looking wedding party!
This golden delicate headband is the perfect addition to the bride’s loose curls by Hair Chemistry Miami and her smoky eye makeup by YS Beauty looks absolutely gorgeous on this brown-eyed beauty!
Move over high heels! The bride went for comfort (while still keeping it stylish!) with these adorable glittery sneakers by Kate Spade!
A dynamic duo to say the least!
Ok, just a TINY bit obsessed with those wedding nails!!
Until Next Time
Tatiana shares how Star Wars has always been a big part of her life, and played an even bigger role during the pandemic.
“I work as a nurse in the ICU and even with all the PPE we had to wear I made sure to exhibit my love of Star Wars. You have no idea what seeing a Star Wars related scrub cap, pin, or badge reel will do for a patient or family member. A temporary break from the stressors of being in the ICU, finding some common ground and talking about something other than prognosis and lab values, not to mention the encouragement of someone telling you not to worry, “the force is strong within your family”. It makes a difference.
If rebellions are built on hope, so are recoveries. I will continue bringing the love of Star Wars to my patients and their families, because I have seen it make a difference. So much so, that the charity organization (the official 501st, backed by Lucasfilm) decided to make an appearance on our special day!
Such a gorgeous reception amongst Colorado’s gorgeous scenery!
Sweet Ride Bake Shop absolutely nailed this cake! With the cutest cake topper which reads: Till Death Star Do Us Part! This couple truly went all out!
But of COURSE, this couple had personalized Star Wars-themed cocktails to kick off a night of fun and dancing!
First dance? How about a first DUEL! That’s right, we said it. This couple knows how to have a good time!
We truly feel the love radiating from this wedding and want to extend the biggest congrats to the happy couple! Looking for more Star Wars inspiration for your own wedding?
